I have had an issue with brakes and lights coming on that says vdo, antilock etc: When driving the SUV at lower speeds and you try to apply the brakes the whole front end starts shaking and grinding and it is impossible to stop. I have replaced brakes, rotors, wheel hub bearings and still have this problem. It is scary when you can't stop a 7,000lb vehicle! I am in fear of an accident. I have read of others having the same problem. Sometimes when running hyw speeds a lot of lights come on and dingers and this has been happening since I bought the Armada. I want to know what Nissan is gonna do about this problem cause it seems I am not the only one having these issues. I have already had to replace the right rear hub assembly 2 times and they are not cheap. I feel Nissan does not want admit they have a problem. I think this needs to be a recall. Since I have had this vehicle I have not received anything from Nissan to address these issues. I pray they will recognize and see to it that these things are fixed and help us the consumer feel safe driving down the highway. I have 3 young children who ride in this Armada. Please help !!

Wife was driving on dry pavement, approaching turn. Brakes gave a grinding sound and failed almost completely. She was barely able to make the turn and enter a parking lot where it eventually slowed to a stop.

2004 Nissan Armada has a brake problem. The brake light comes on while driving. I have to turn off truck and turn it back on to reset break light. If I use brakes when light is on the ABS does not work, it makes a springy crunching noise when brake is pressed.the pedal went down so easily when it did this. Listen. Help. I understand that the problem is the call: "brake booster "or "master brake cylinder "is expensive and I check online and notice that many peoples already has this problem and not only 2004, also2005, 2006,2007 ! Nissan shall have this in re-call such that's very dangerous I tock the suggestion that write to this very important website thank you !!

Symptom: Nissan vehicle looses braking ability when this symptom happens. Brake light comes on the dashboard, brake pedal goes all the way to the floor, and there is grinding noise from the front end toward the wheels. Vehicle braking ability is reduced to 10% or less. Turning ignition off/on resolves for short time, but not a permanent fix. Nissan has tsb ntb06-040 to clear the code C1179 from brake module. I had preformed at my cost and issue came back. Called Nissan and opend a file number 7181591, but they are blaming it on me, not the flaw that is happening to 100's of other Armadas including me. I am requesting safecar.gov to probe Nissan about the brake issue that is affecting 2004 Armada, titan, and infinity QX56 and to find out if they are doing anything to fix it.

Brake failure on 2004 Nissan pathfinder Armada: There is a known issue that Nissan is not doing anything to prevent accidents from catastrophic accidents due to failure of ABS system. They have a tsb ntb-060 out and dealer would re-flash the ABS system to fix the issue for an hour labor charge. I had this happen to my Armada on 1/26/2011 and found 1000's of user with issue on different discussion forums on the internet. I am filing this complain to make sure Nissan usa will take this matter seriously. Symptom if issue: Brake light comes on, brake paddle will go to the floor and spring cracking noise comes from front end. Brake does not work 95% to the capacity. Nissan dealer will try to sell a new brake booster pump for $1000 if customer is not aware this is a known issue with 2004-2005 Nissan Armada, and titan. I had my baby in the back and had to drive 5 miles to home with non existing brake. Please follow through Nissan to make sure they take care of issues so it does not happen to other people and lives are lost due to a defect that manufacturer should recall.

Brakes on SUV have failed to work as designed on multiple occasions due to non-mechanical issues. Problems may stem from electrical or sensor issues. The brake light indicator displays on the dashboard and the SUV automatically locks up the brakes. The problems has been duplicated with a repair technician but they cannot find the source of the problem.
